the biggest earthquake and tsunami in japan. aftershocks are a given, but the latest jolt with the preliminary magnitude of 6.4 was apparently not an aftershock at all but a new earthquake in its own right. the quake on friday and most of the tremors since have been northeast of the capital. that's where the loss, the devastation, they're simply too much to bear. the official death toll stands at 3,373 with more than twice that number officially listed as missing. the real numbers are unknown, certainly much higher. here's a more solid number for you. 91, that's the latest count of countries big and small offering some kind of help, according to japan's foreign ministry. through it all the most immediate crisis is the fukushima daichi nuclear plant. all three reactors that were online at the time of the quake have endured explosions in the building that housed them. earlier today a fire broke out in a building that houses a fourth reactor and the radiation went into the atmosphere. the fire is out now. the government says radiation levels at the plant are no longer harmful to human health. tha

a catastrophic nuclear event in japan today. this is a critical time now. at this hour, there are reports that four of the six reactors at the fukushima daiichi plant are in danger of melting down. perhaps most worrisome are the spent fuel rods in number 4. a top u.s. official warned that the rods are now exposed. a claim that japanese officials later denied. >> in addition to the three reactors operating at the time of the incident a fourth reactor is under concern. we believele there's been a hydrogen explosion in this unit due to an uncovering of the fuel in the fuel pool. we believe that secondary containment has been destroyed. there is no water in the spent fuel pool and we believe that radiation levels are extremely high. >> that does not sound good at all. the japanese government has been trying to cool all the reactors, pumping water into the plant and trying to drop water from helicopters. that had to be abandoned because of rough winds and the radiation threat. there are reports that some workers are getting sick already from radiation exposure which is not surprising. experts

of the region. but first, we turn to japan. where emergency workers are feverishly trying to cool down overheating fuel rods at the earthquake and tsunami-stricken nuclear plant. a u.n. nuclear official says the situation is "very serious." but appears to be stable. for now. the u.s. authorized the first evacuations of americans out of japan and president obama says he has asked for a comprehensive review of u.s. nuclear plant safety. correspondent greg palkot is in japan with the latest. >> reporter: there were desperate measures thursday in the fukushima nuclear plant in northeastern japan. helicopters doused water on overheating reactors to avoid a catastrophic core meltdown. the facility was sprayed down with more water from fire trucks. while authorities say there is some stabilization, they admit the method had little effect in reducing temperatures at the plant. others say even if a power line reaches coolant pumps they might not work. >> this is a very severe situation. we need to keep coolings at the fuel so that it doesn't reach criticality. >> reporter: all of the uncertaint
17th. >>> in japan, crews are finishing laying a new cable. it will supply more reliable electricity needed to keep the reactors cool at an earthquake- damaged nuclear plant. restoring electricity to the plant is the best way to avoid a meltdown. nuclears have been overheating since the tsunami knocked out the cooling systems and also destroy thed the -- destroyed the generator. crews were flying missions about 40 minutes each to limit their radiation exposure from the helicopters. >>> meanwhile, the united states has authorized the first evacuations of americans. the state department says chartered planes will be brought in to help private american citizens wishing to leave japan. >>> u.s. citizens are also being urged to defer all nonessential travel to any part of that country because unpredictable wind conditions could spread radioactive contamination. and the u.s. is still telling americans living -- living within 50 miles of the damaged plant to leave the area or at least remain indoors while the japanese government is limiting its warning to people living within 12 miles of th
east. libya tonight in particular. and japan. i want to lay out a case. i want to start with reverend wright. we know reverend wright. he was his reverend for 20 years. reverend wright is more than that. this is the guy who taught him and led him to jesus. i heard a speech a couple of years ago where the president said he had no understanding or appreciation really for jesus and the gospel. until he got it from reverend wright. now, reverend wright understands a collective salvation. the idea that you can't be redeemed or saved unless everyone is. and whatever you decide is true. that's fine for you. i'm not trying to preach religion to you. but i'm telling you that it's the exact opposite of what jesus taught. you can't find collective salvation in the gospel. it's nowhere to be found there are no ifs, ands or buts on that. none. individual salvation is universally accepted as the principal message of jesus christ. it's important because it's the antithesis of what jesus taught. we begin there. belief in collective salvation. the idea that you have to help others and you have to save

and strong allies in japan, as they've come to terms and wrestled with this challenging situation. most of you know that our equipment that we sent over to support them has arrived on a c-17. we sent a team of 33 additional people which were in addition to the six people we already had out there in japan. they had over 17,000 pounds of equipment with them. they've unpacked that. they've taken the two pods that do the aerial measurement of ground depositions and mounted them, one on a fixed-wing aircraft and one on a helicopter and we flew those aircraft on their first missions. we've been collecting information as they've come back. we're in the process of sharing that information with our japanese hosts and while that's still being looked at, preliminary indications are that they're consistent with the recommendations that came down from the nuclear regulatory commission. so indications are, it looks like the 50-mile evacuation was prudent. other countries around the world continue to do what they can do support the japanese as they lead this effort to address this challenge. we've had
